Quietly on tour 2016

Award-winning play tours to New York

Extended until 25 September

Due to popular demand, the run of Quietly at the Irish Repertory Theatre has been extended for two weeks until Sunday 25 September!

This summer, Quietly by Owen McCafferty is performing off Broadway for two months at the Irish Repertory Theatre in New York.

Quietly is a play about Belfast, a place poised delicately between the past and future.

When this gripping new play by Belfast writer Owen McCafferty premiered at the Abbey Theatre in 2012, The Irish Times hailed it as ‘The best new play of the year’.

Over the past 4 years, this critically-acclaimed production has toured extensively, winning numerous awards. It has been seen in venues in Dublin, Edinburgh, Drogheda, Roscommon, Castleblaney, Sligo, Letterkenny, Navan, Cavan, Longford, Belfast, Recklinghausen and London.

At the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Quietly won a prestigious Scotsman Fringe First Award, Owen McCafferty scooped the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Play and Patrick O’Kane’s stunning performance was acknowledged as Best Actor at The Stage Awards and Best Performance in a Play at the 2014 UK Theatre Awards.

Now we bring this powerful story of truth and forgiveness to New York for its US premiere.

The Abbey Theatre’s production of Quietly is supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme and McCann FitzGerald.

July 20 – September 11, 2016 at the Irish Repertory Theatre in association with The Public Theater
